Finally, a mortgage offer from NatWest for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom garden flat is coming imminently. Can you recommend a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Blackburn?

You have come to the wrong site to search for the lowest fares for conveyancing in Blackburn. Our aim is to provide affordable conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Do not be swayed by organisations teasing you with £100 conveyancing in Blackburn. Optimistically, in choosing a lawyer for cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst it will result in you invoiced for extras and still not end up with the service you were looking for.

We note that you have a search directory identifying firms on the UBS conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for our conveyancing in Blackburn?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the UBS conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Blackburn.

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Blackburn for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our bank Clydesdale won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

A decade ago most mortgage companies had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Blackburn conveyancing firms would have been on many bank panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 carried out a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies have regularly sought more data from law firms concerning their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as establishing certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of conveyancing. Many Blackburn conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Blackburn is one of the hundreds of locations where the lawyers showing on our search results are members of the panel for Clydesdale.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a garden flat in Blackburn. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Blackburn?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Blackburn. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Blackburn conveyancing lawyers are selected. How long does it take for UBS to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS conducted the valuation? Have you advised UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I currently have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Blackburn. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?

You must advise Aldermore before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.

All being well we will complete our sale of a £450,000 flat in Blackburn next week. The freeholder has quoted £300 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Blackburn?

Blackburn conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes usually requires the purchaser’s conveyancer sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions the majority will be willing to do so. They are at liberty to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it is in excess of £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to complete the sale of your home.

I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Blackburn, conveyancing formalities finalised November 1999. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Blackburn with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2088

You have 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £15,200 and £17,600 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
